    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Seen the Sagrada Familia, the Ramblas and Parc Güell? Then you might want to get to know the other side of Barcelona. This route will help you discover a bit of Barcelona from a local's point of view. You will be taken away from the routes every tourist knows, and you'll find places where there are no tourist traps. And best of all, I'll tell you where to find the best place to eat tapas.

    Mijn complimenten aan de auteur van deze tour.
    Voor de eerste keer was de navigatie-begeleiding zoals het zou moeten zijn. Slechts twee keer ging ik in de fout maar dat was snel hersteld. Het was niets vergeleken met de frustraties waartegen ik moest vechten bij de tours van andere audiotour-app’s.
    Naast de goede navigatiebegeleiding was ook de menselijke stem van de gids goed gedaan. Deze was levendig en helder, geen voorlees-stem maar een enthousiaste praatstem. Goed te verstaan en te volgen ondanks verkeerslawaai, cafe-muziek of luidruchtig passerende groepen.
    Op de derde plaats was hetgeen ze vertelde goed te volgen. Geen uitgebreide abstracte historische uiteenzettingen met jaartallen en historische feitjes, maar herkenbare verhalen over wat je zag, terwijl je ook nog aandacht moest hebben voor allerlei zaken die zich daarnaast om je heen afspeelden op straat.
    En niet op de laatste plaats was het prettig en interessant om door dit deel van Barcelona te wandelen.
    Uitstekend werk dus van deze auteur en daarvoor wil ik haar graag bedanken.

    My compliments to the author of this tour.
    For the first time, navigation guidance was as it should be. I went wrong only twice, but that was quickly corrected. It was nothing compared to the frustrations I had to fight in the tours of other audiotour apps.
    In addition to good navigation guidance, the human voice of the guide was also well done. It was lively and clear, not an aloud voice, but an enthusiastic talking voice. Easy to understand and follow despite traffic noise, cafe music or noisy groups passing by.
    Thirdly, what she said was easy to follow. No extensive abstract historical explanations with dates and historical facts, but recognizable stories about what you saw, while you also had to pay attention to all kinds of things that also happened around you on the street.
    And last but not least, it was nice and interesting to walk through this part of Barcelona.
    Excellent work by this author and for that I’d like to thank her.

    Not much information on the sights/history of the visited area. It’s mainly just “turn left, turn right, go straight”. In our case, our hotel was close by and we were walking through many of the streets anyways, a couple times.

    I'm sorry you're disappointed by the tour, Christian. But the tour is what it says: it takes you away from the tourist traps. That's it.
